New restaurants for Ipswich

Natalie S in Westbourne
Are you keen to see new chain restaurants coming to Ipswich? Will Wagamama, Five Guys and Joe's Kitchen help revive our night-time economy? Or will they turn Ipswich into an identi-kit ... [ more ]
Had only heard of Wagamama so Googled the other two. If these businesses have the confidence to invest in a presence in Ipswich that can only be a good thing, I reckon. Look forward to Wagamama - always liked it when in London - and also trying the other ... [ more ]

When I worked for the MOD in the late 80's it was the civil services social club but I didn't know the area then and couldn't find it but no-one I knew went there or recommended it so I didn't bother with it.
I worked at BT research dept from 1972 and the Hollies was bought sometime around then. I think it was originally the Research Sports and Social Club (RSSC). At some we had to join the CSSC as well which was the civil services social club.

Tony - panels flex too much and are only held in generally by about 1cm of concrete on both sides . You can get galvanised brackets that hold the panels much more securely . If your posts are wooden then similarly can be resolved with better fixings .

Tree needs pruning

John W in Westbourne
We've got a magnolia tree in our front garden that needs pruning, we need a few suggestions for tree surgeons, ideally people who know their trees, not just someone with a saw and a ladder.

The big problem with a Magnolia tree is that it really doe's fight back. we prune ours every couple of years and it fights with a vengeance but it is healthy and produces lovely flowers sometimes twice a year.
